THE GATHERING were recently added and still require a biography.

 I personally love the band and would love to write one, but for the fact I usually paint them in too bright colours...

Anybody familiar with the band and willing to write a biography ?

BTW I'll volunteer as long as I can cover bands I know or can readily research (downside: clearly with other volunteers doing similar,  certain artists/musicians won't get checked out.

 

Lise (Hibou) is already doing this job for progarchives.com

Any suggestion regarding Bios ?

Thanks

Prog On !

I have sent in a bio for A Barca Do Sol, Albatros, Alpha Centauri and Aries.

Edit:  Concerning Abarax, Proglucky should provide a bio, no?

Edit:  Concerning Agora, you have a Mexican Agora, and an Italian Agora, but they are the same band.  It should be listed as one Agora, the Mexican prog-metal band.  And I don't think this is just a mixup considering Live in Montruex I know for sure is a record by the Mexican prog-metal Agora, but it's under the Italian Agora?  What's that all about?

What an earth are you talking about here?

How can these two be the same band?

I know for sure that Live in Montreaux is by the Italian Agora and released in the seventies. And that's a fact.

Tony , just send any corrections to Max/Rony using the "Prog archives" tab and they'll update the bios.

Looks like you're upsetting your image hosting service by the way. Your posts are too popular!LOL

I accidently mispelled the name of the band I was submitting. It should be The Secret MACHINES. Plural not singular. Here's the link to the Bio I created

So is it okay to just copy the biography from another site (say... the band's official one) and then list it as the source at the end of said biography?

This might require the expressed written consent..... It might be easier to paraphrase a text than avoid all possibilities of author's rights and eventual royalties.

although I could not even begin to picture a band suing another site for including a text from their site as a promotion tool on another site.

let's just stay above the moral melee
prefer the sink to the gutter
keep our sand-castle virtues
content to be a doer
as well as a thinker,
prefer lifting our pen
rather than un-sheath our sword

Why is this a Sticky Topic? What the heck is a sticky topic? The word sticky is not a very descriptive term when applied to an email thread.
